    Our driveway is short so I'm not bothering with a snowblower.

    I figure I'll change my mind sometime next month.

    yeah mine is about 60 feet long but I only use like 15-20 feet of it

    the last 2 feet where the plow packed the snow killed me

    My driveway is the exact length of my car and there isn't anywhere to blow the snow anyway. I usually scoop up a shovelful, walk up my driveway with it and toss it over my fence. My street really isn't snow compatible but it snows anyway. Rude.

  • schussschuss Registered User regular
    My first winter we had a 6 month old and all the snowblowers were sold out because it was the unending blizzard of '14-15.

    I shoveled a lot of fucking snow.

    my apartment is, floor level, below 60F, and if the thermometer is on my dresser 63F

    of course some of this has to do with drafts from still having the AC unit in etc but also most of the time in the winter the radiator makes the apartment a giant furnace and it's usually way too hot in here (75F+)

    so wtf is going on
    the legal minimum is 68F during the daytime in nyc, and 62F between 10pm and 6am

    and if we have these radiators that are normally a bajillion degrees why not right now

    I sit on a $100 chair from Staples that works super well for me, but I figure that's not what most other people would be looking for.

    Honestly I really like their options, they have a fair number of them, they have frequent huge discounts on their chairs, and you get to test them all out in the store before buying! I mentioned earlier that I'd spent $100, but the chair was like half off.

    My computer chair is finally succumbing to the thousands of hours of my corpulent form sitting in it over the last four or maybe five years or so, it's done well for an $85 IKEA chair! We're gonna upgrade to a much nicer chair from an office supply store soon, unfortunately our budget doesn't stretch anywhere near far enough for us to get something like an Aeron, but my partner and I both have experience with the better office chairs available locally so we're confident we can pick out something comfortable and sturdy that should last a decade or so.

    I really need to buy a sturdier computer chair, or at least one my wife can't straddle me in, because about once every six months or so she gets the desire to reaffirm her ability to distract me out of a game session by sitting in my lap and engaging in making out/hard snuggling/affectionate grinding and the last three office chairs I've purchased have been unable to sustain such... sustained vigourous activity and have all met premature ends as various parts wore out from increased strain and wear and tear.

    Well, that cost a lot of money. Does anyone need any hoovering done or windows cleaning?

    ibFshRal.jpg
    This is the view towards where my desk will eventually be. Giant square hole in the ceiling is where the recessed LED panels will be going for some diffused light action

    Just for fun, this is what this looked like when we moved in:
    lbXFlYKl.jpg

    SLs7Wnfl.jpg
    Here's looking back where the previous picture was taken. Boiler room on the far right.

    3ApSzA6l.jpg
    This was going to be where my desk was, until my other half went up at about noon on a sunny day and realised it was darker than my current office. So now it's going to be a cosy nook for a spare bed? Maybe?

    8MWI6GJl.jpg
    And then the sofa corner. Which might be a bed corner too and the sofa will go in the picture above. Once I've cleaned up a bit I need to move things around and see how things look

    So now all I have to do before I have a fully working room is:
    1. Size all the freshly-plastered surfaces with some watered-down paint (currently about 120m square including the other bits (outside of the stairs in the spare room, outside of the bathroom wall)
    2. Order skirting boards, cut to size and fit
    3. Cut to size and fit the doors (boiler room and 2x eaves-access hatches)
    4. Cut and fit banister rail
    5. Architrave around doors, hatches and ante-loft hatch
    6. Apply fresh-wood undercoat to stair edges, banister rail, spindles, skirting, architraves
    7. Paint walls / ceiling
    8. Clean and varnish exposed purlins / beams
    9. Gloss stair edges, banister rail, spindles, skirting, architraves
    10. Get the plumbers back to fit the radiators and activate the new loop
    11. Buy lights, sockets, switches and network fascias
    12. Finish wiring everything up and get the electrician out to fit the new consumer unit and connect it to the main board
    13. Cry at the cost of carpet

    So, another year?

    Uggghh

    Did some work with my father-in-law in the basement over the weekend, we've got real lights installed in the main room now. We got two LED panels to put in the ceiling and if I'm being honest they're a lot brighter than I though they'd be but it's nice not to have to walk through the room turning on a series of floor lamps anymore.

    This was an two story addition out back. It's done (mostly), but there's been a few snags. There's some minor code issues left in the interior that need to get tied off and there's the outstanding mess of the backyard and concrete steps out the back that aren't done.

    But the inspectors have had to deal with:

    The GC submitting plans that had an incorrect grade on the back of the house, because he didn't want to pay for a grade survey (those are super expensive, as he said).
    So the initial plans got revised from a patio out back at grade to a set of stairways. Which were then poured incorrectly and didn't have enough clearance for the patio door above the steps. So they ripped out the steps again. At that point, we discovered that the concrete subcontractor installed a french drain for the drain in the stairs and tied it in to the drain tile, which is what the inspector SPECIFICALLY told them not to do. After a couple of months of back and forth with the GC saying things like, "It doesn't matter what the code is, the inspectors approved it so it's fine.", the inspectors made them dig it up. And it was exactly what the inspectors told them not to do. With the added bonus of the concrete contractor sending pictures to the inspectors that were not what was under the stairs. So the inspectors are madder than a next of hornets at this point.

    Then the pipes in the laundry room in the new addition freeze. So we're going through the process of making a claim against the GCs insurance and bond. And it turns out, the primary subcontractor who did the framing and finish work never got licensed with the village. So when the inspector showed up yesterday to look at the pipes and lack of insulation and the GC and unlicensed subcontractor were there, he got pissed and threw them out.

    Our lawyer is just astounded at all of this and we're already on track to pull the GCs complete bond, make a claim against his business insurance and we're probably going to get the attorney general involved at some point.
